The Picture of Dorian Gray â€”Oscar Wilde
A cursory look while driving by a fading banner brought this timeless classic to mind. A book targeting the vain and the vainglorious alike this great work should be read by all once every year, to remind ourselves of the pitfalls of vanity.
Dorian Gray, an aristocratic member of Victorian high-society, is the subject of a full-length portrait, made by an artist who is infatuated with Dorianâ€™s beauty. Dorian upon viewing his beauty by way of the portrait fears the day when it too will fade. After coming into contact with a convenient philosophy that purports beauty and sensual fulfilment as the only things pursuing in life, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul for the sake of his beauty. This wish is granted on the condition that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. He in the meantime can pursue a life of hedonism and pleasure, but all the while hides from his true, ugly, self that lives in the picture.
